WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Valdez’ main asset is raw power. It’s not clear he’ll offer much value defensively or on the bases.
In his debut, Valdez hit reasonably well, with a much better BB:K ratio than many other young prospects. He didn’t, however, show much power. He divided his time between first and right.
Valdez will probably be in the Gulf Coast League in 2022.
